PWD talks about water main breaks, robots make sushi in Philly

    Good morning, Feeders, and welcome to the future!

    Lizz Fiedler and Kim Paynter are heading to Suburban Station today to check out sushi-making robots. Before that, they’ll be in Mayfair where some residents have had their pools slashed.
    Tom MacDonald is rolling a few headlines into one today. He’ll look at a Philly councilman’s effort to break the stop-snitching culture, the case of an assault rifle spotted on SEPTA and the number of crime rewards issued in Philadelphia.

    Emma Jacobs is heading to the scene of the latest city water main break where she’ll talk to the Water Department and just what exactly causes four breaks in less than two weeks.

    And Carolyn Beeler will have details on how Philadelphians can get electric car charges installed in their homes.

    On NewsWorks Tonight, Carolyn has a story about University of Delaware researchers tracking sand tiger sharks.
